all right

Occasionally adding corroborative details to add verisimilitude to otherwise bald and unconvincing,
but veridicous accounts
with careful attention, indefatigable assiduity, and nice discrimination.

Winter Returns

Lucretius prophesied the coming of the Al. Gore-effect over two thousand years ago:
tandem Bruma nives adfert pigrumque rigorem;

reddit Hiemps; sequitur crepitans hanc dentibus Algor.
[At last the Hibernal Solstice brings snows and benumbing cold;

Winter returns; Chill follows her with chattering teeth.
  (De Rerum Natura, V. 746-47)]
